Treasure fourth in women’s high jump final; #GC2018 comes to an end tomorrow in Gold Coast

It was a quiet day for Canada at Carrara Stadium with only one Canadian athlete in action.

Alyxandria Treasure, in her first Commonwealth Games appearance, would enter the women’s high jump final at 1.75 metres. With many of her teammates cheering her on, she’d go on the clear 1.91 metres in a battle for Bronze with Australia’s Nicola McDermott. Tied with one attempt left, both athletes would exit the competition after failing to clear 1.93 metres. McDermott would ultimately claim the Bronze medal with the fewest misses throughout the competition, leaving Treasure one spot off the podium.

The final day of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games gets underway tomorrow at 6:10 a.m. local time (4:10 p.m. ET, April 14) with the T54 marathon, which will feature Canada’s Alexandre Dupont (Gold in the men’s T54 1,500-metes), Jessica Frotten, Diane Roy (Bronze in the women’s T54 1,500-metres) and Tristan Smyth.

“I’m proud of the way I competed, but it still hurts. Fourth-place is one of the hardest positions to be in, especially being tied at the same bar.”
